Google Home Mini review, 6 months later: The smart speaker that should be in everybody’s home

Simply put, the Home Mini is the perfect smart speaker for just about everyone.

When Amazon launched the Echo Dot in 2015, it made a breakthrough in the smart speaker industry by offering all of the smarts of Alexa in a package that was considerably smaller and more affordable than its flagship Echo speaker. That’s essentially the same path that Google took with the Home Mini, and while all of the things it does are done better by the  [Read More…]

Six months later, Google Lens still isn’t great

I know it’s a preview, but I want to use this every day.

For a company aimed at being the knowledge graph of the entire planet, image-based AI services are an obvious thing for Google to want to get right. And for anyone using Google Photos over the last couple of years, you know there have been huge strides made in enhancing these capabilities. Facial and object recognition in Google Photos, can be incredible, and there’s a  [Read More…]

Razer Phone review, 4 months later: Gamers’ delight

Mobile games have never looked or sounded so good.

You have to commend Razer for going against the industry trends and making some really bold design choices for its first smartphone, the Razer Phone. Okay, I guess you don’t have to commend them — but I will.

Razer calls the Razer Phone the “smartphone for gamers” and also “the ultimate smartphone for mobile entertainment”. And I know that those are marketing buzzwords but damn if it hasn’t  [Read More…]

Galaxy S8 review, one year later: Much cheaper, still fantastic

The Galaxy S8 is still a great phone, one year after release.

While the Galaxy S9 holds the lion’s share of our current attention, the Galaxy S8 is still chugging along. It’s been a year since the S8’s release, but it’s still worth your money today.

In fact, it may be worth your money more than the S9 is right now. The S9 has the benefit of newer hardware, better cameras, and… not much else, really. The S9 launched  [Read More…]

OnePlus 5T review, 4 months later: Still the phone to beat

Four months after its release, the OnePlus 5T is still one of the best options in the $ 500 category.

Over the last three years, OnePlus managed to carve out a niche for itself by selling phones for a couple hundred dollars less than the likes of the flagships from Samsung, Google, and LG while offering the same top-of-the-line specs. The Chinese brand isn’t the first one to do so, as the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, and  [Read More…]

Twitter adds Bookmarks so you can save tweets for later without liking them

Say goodbye to awkwardly liking tweets you don’t actually agree with.

Twitter’s my go-to social network of choice, and while I enjoy most parts of it, there are a few areas that are in desperate need of improvement (I’m looking at you, un-editable tweets). While edits still aren’t here, Twitter is adding something that a lot of people have been asking for for a while — bookmarks.

As you can probably guess, the purpose of bookmarks is  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy S8 review, 10 months later: The go-to flagship holds up well

10 months of use have treated the GS8 well … mostly.

It’s been 10 months since we published our full review of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. In that time, several other great phones have launched into the world, and we’ve compared the Galaxy S8 to all of them. As I write this, we’re less than two weeks away from the Galaxy S9 being unveiled — and yet, the Galaxy S8 is still in the conversation. Samsung’s  [Read More…]

Cord cutting: 18 months later, I don’t miss cable TV

Or the bill that came with it.

Subscribe to Modern Dad on YouTube

It’s more than a little strange to try to explain cable TV to my kids. To them, images on a screen are just the result of whatever app you picked. Those of us of a certain age, however, can remember a time when televisions weren’t flat, when pictures weren’t color, and when antennas and tinfoil were constantly adjusted. To them, there’s no difference between network  [Read More…]
